Next Friday, I’m gonna die.
―Cassie Newton[src]

Cassandra Agatha “Cassie” Newton was a Sunnydale High School student with precognition abilities and a friend of Dawn Summers.

BiographyEdit

LifeEdit

I’d love to ice skate at Rockefeller Center. And I’d love to watch my cousins grow up, see who they become — cause they’re really mean and I think they’re gonna be fat. And I’ve never been to the Louvre. I’d love to see the Mona Lisa. Or meet Peter Falk. Or backpack across the country. Or, I don’t know… fall in love. But I won’t. I just… never will.
―Cassie[src]

Cassie was the daughter of a divorced couple, a mother and an alcoholic father with a criminal record; Phillip Newton. Her mother obtained custody, while her father, only obtained one weekend a month with his daughter. She maintained the blog Cassie's Poetry and Paintings, and was apparently a fan of the band White Stripes. At Sunnydale High, Cassie was friends with Mike Helgenberg and Dawn Summers.

Cassie was sent to Buffy Summers, the school’s guidance counselor, because she had stopped doing her homework and her grades had dropped. She told Buffy that she would die on the next Friday.

Buffy, along with Xander, Dawn, Willow, and Spike managed to rescue her from a group of boys who tried to sacrifice her for the Invocation of Avilas. However, immediately after, Cassie died of a heart failure caused by a congenital condition, fulfilling her own prophecy.[1]

LegacyEdit

Buffy: “See? You can make a difference.
Cassie: “And you will.
— Buffy and Cassie’s final conversation[src]

Before dying, Cassie revealed a couple of prophecies that were fulfilled during the battle between the Slayers and the First Evil’s Turok-Han army. She revealed to Spike that “[Buffy]’ll tell [him]” she loved him, and to Buffy that she would make a difference: activating every Potential Slayer in the world into real Slayers.

Willow realized that this was not Cassie, so this figure — actually a disguise of the First Evil — taunted Willow and disappeared.[2]
